Gill, thanks for replying. The Hignells that I am researching are from Gloucestershire, Beginning with Henry (b. 18 Oct 1835 Cheltenham; d.27 Jun 1915 Guelph, Ontario, Canada). His father was John (b ?; d?) married Marinda Goulding (b. 30 Jan 1803 Arlingham; d. 07 Dec 1871 Leckampton). They had four children one of which was Henry. I have extensive information on the Hignells in Canada, but nothing of the English ancestory. What do you have on the Gloucestershire Hignells? By the way I am researching from Ottawa, Canada so I do not have access to records in England.
